    It’s true, though, the majority of movies on the market today, Hollywood or otherwise, don’t have particularly good or memorable stories, especially as of late. Most movies now are simply produced to make a buck with no intent on leaving a memorable impact. This may be good or bad depending on which side you’re on, but I personally wouldn’t mind seeing a few more good movies coming out.

    heck, I’m 12 and I’ve written stories better than a lot of hollywood movies I’ve seen.

    I, a mere 13 year old, have written 3 full length Scripts, all of over current Hollywood Standard, a full set of full length novels (all 90% original, no Star Galaxy novels here about a bounty hunter with a Lightsaber), am in the process of writing ‘GOLD’ (a community project that actually looks quite promising) and most of the above was in fact written LONG before i was 13.

    4. You probably can write something better then current Hollywood standard, it’s not exactly that hard.

    If you guys are all so amazing at scriptwriting, why don’t you just sell your stories to HollyWood? Then maybe you could change their standards and become famous.

    TwickABros, one cannot simply move to LA with a script and sell it immediately. It is much more complicated than that. Also, most of us are minors, thus unable to start a filmmaking career.

    The problem is deeper than just studios making bad movies. People actually like that crap. A girl in my history class complained that Juno was too serious and had too much of a plot. (I should probably mention that I haven’t seen it yet.)

    I was being sarcastic. I had no real belief they would do that.

    Sounds interesting. Please explain.

    I CANT SELL SCRIPTS TO HOLLYWOOD!
    Do you REALLY think they are going to by a script of a 12/13/Whatever year old?

    There is about one paid job to every million people who want to be in the film industry. Shoot for the moon by all means, but make sure you have something else to fall back on if it doesn’t work out.

    I make no secret of the fact that I want to go to NYU. That would definitely pave the way for a career in film, I think. I would have a hell of a lot of fun at the very least.

    Alkami, it sounds really dubious when you claim to write scripts that are “better than Hollywood”.

    Actually, I don’t necessarily think Hollywood is that bad. Sure, there have been a ton of terrible movies, but 2007 seems like quite a good year as far as film goes.

    Yes! Someone who agrees with me.
